Epic Recs is a book recommendation challenge hosted by Amber @ Books of Amber and Judith @ Paper Riot. Essentially, you and a partner recommend a book to each other each month. I’ve been dying to participate but due to time constraints I never searched for a partner. I’ve finally got time, so I put out a call to Twitter. Lili from Lili’s Reflections, was there to answer my call and I couldn’t ask for a better partner. She knows my tastes and the kind of books I like so I know I can trust her to recommend something great to me.
Lili’s Pick: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay. This has been on my TBR forEVER. And honestly, I have no idea why I haven’t read it yet. I love fairy tale retellings and everyone seems to love this one.
My pick: The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. I saw that Lili recently read I’ll Give You the Sun and could not believe she hadn’t read Nelson’s first novel yet. It’s one of my favorite books of all time and I am giddy at the prospect of pushing it on someone else.
Have you read either of these books yet? What did you think?
